From what I recall, his choice (or at least one of them) against 2. c3 was 2...Nf6 3. e5 Nd5 4. d4 cd 5. Nf3 e6 6. cd b6, which it seems isn't the height of fashion these days.  Apparently the last time it was addressed in Chess Publishing was Dec. 2014.


Kotronias detailed a repertoire for Black with this continuation in Chess Informants 121-122 in his "Muscle Up" series.

Does anybody know if the repertoire choices in this book are still "valid" (I don't know a better English word) compared to the books by Rogozenko, Palliser and Kotronias?

And could somebody maybe give an index of variations?



Not sure how valid they would still be now but am also interested to find out. I can list the lines when i get time as i still have a copy. Was thinking of going back to them myself if i take up the dragon again next season as i play at a very low level and can probably get away with any of the problem lines. I do remember that around the time it was released at least one of the lines against the c3 sicilian was deemed to be bust.
